Snapshots #295: A Top Ten Biblical Character Songs

Time for Sunday School! Did you get all the Biblical characters featured in yesterday's Top Ten Commandments? Here they are...

10. Runner gets biceps.


Bruce Springsteen - Adam Raised A Cain

Or you could have had...

Bruce Springsteen - Daniel In The Lion's Den

9. Perforations.

The Pierces - The Good Samaritan

8. Did they kill a mockingbird?

Go read To Kill A Mockingbird again. Boo didn't do it.

The Boo Radleys - Lazarus

7. Nick Drake will meet these guys later.

Nick Drake sang about it getting Bryter Later,

Brighter - Noah's Ark

6. A hijack on lamas.


Mahalia Jackson - Joshua Fit The Battle Of Jericho

5. Hurley, Montgomery, Olsen... I'm listening.

Three Elizabeths... and Frasier Crane.

Elizabeth Fraser - Moses

4. Syrups for long-haired hounds.

Wigs for Afghans.

The Afghan Whigs - John The Baptist

3. Grab the Boss by the horns, by a homeware store.

Bruce is the Boss. By the horns, by. The Range is a big shop.

Bruce Hornsby & The Range - Jacob's Ladder

I prefer the Huey Lewis version, but Bruce hasn't featured here before... and he did write the song.

2. Mix Orange with Mellow Yellow.

Jason Orange + Donovan...

Jason Donovan - Joseph (Any Dream Will Do)

1. Parrot Seeking / Moon Jets.

Two anagrams for the price of one... and two songs to boot!

Regina Spektor - Samson

Tom Jones - Delilah 

Let there be more next week.

  1. I feel a bit of a fraud having got the link for this one as it was only after C identified Jason D that I thought along those lines because of his role in Joseph. Turns out there are lots of biblical character songs (and yes I did go to Sunday School so I had a head start).
